Fall Holiday Recipes – The best (organic!) hot cocoa

This thanksgiving, I’m thankful for Chocolate. Chocolate that is hot, mixed with milk, topped with whipped cream, and seasoned perfectly with the warm flavors of these colder months.

Nothing compares to hot cocoa that is made from scratch. Sure, it’s not as convenient as the pre-packaged stuff, but nothing compares to home made. And that is because when you make things from scratch, you have control over your ingredients. You can chose quality, and that always makes a huge difference!

I'm a former sweet-tooth turned health-nut. After a difficult loss of a first pregnancy and having a second child with a heart condition, I became obsessed with health and wellness. I revamped our entire family's lifestyle, dropped seven pant sizes, and created a website where I could share our story and help support people wanting to make small changes day by day in order to live well. I also support my family by the work that I do here through advertising content, affiliates, and partnership/consultant links within content. When you click and/or order, it puts food on our table. Thanks for all your support, and may you live well and thrive!
